Forest of Illusions (幻想の森(土湯杉群生地))
This forest is located in the Furukuchi Tsuchiyu, Tozawa Village, Mogami County. It is densely populated by Tsuchiyu Japanese cedars, which are abundant along the Mogami River. The complex forks and curves of the trunks of these enormous trees, which are said to be over 1,000 years old, create a wondrous view worthy of the forest’s name.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
